Gonzalez update

FOX Sport’s Jay Glazer spoke to Tony Gonzalez, who confirmed he asked Chiefs President/GM Carl Peterson to seek a trade for him. On FOX Sports Sunday, Glazer also said that Kansas City was initially asking for a 2nd and 5th round pick, but may take less with the trade deadline fast approaching (Tuesday 4pm).

There have also been reports (ESPN News) that the Chiefs asking price is a “first round pick and change.” So exactly what the Chiefs would settle for is unclear.

Gonzalez wants to go to a team that can contend for a title. Most reports tab the Giants as a likely destination, but according to Glazer the Giants aren’t overly interested.

In light of the AFC picture right now, I don’t think it’s unrealistic to say the Bills are a playoff contender and Gonzalez would make them that much more formidable. But if the Chiefs are looking for a first-round pick and change, that’s a lot to give up.

It will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
